View Full Version : R1 during the start

Sometimes the ship starts noticeably faster with R1 key - what's the exact technique to always start so fast?

I should hope your ship ALWAYS starts faster when you press R1: That is the turbo button!

At the start keep your Thrust bar just above your Sheild bar.

Think of it as revving your car at the start of a race.

This doesn't work. The ship has to start really fast and make different sound.

Perhaps your controller is broken or something, since it works quite well for everyone else...

this is the regular boost start:
It's just regular WO3, but it shouldn't make a difference for this purpose... it's done using only the accelerator. I've never launched from the start line using the hypterthrust, though.

Also, if you're using a dual shock, the controller rumbles at the boost point if you have vibration turned on.

ok I got it now. The short presses with X - I tried to hold down X at first, not clicking fast.

Pretty much. Hands free, 3...2...1...GO!

Let the 3..2..1.. slide. Then press acceleration when it says "GO!!". That will give you full thrust upon launch.

Let old threads rest.
Also the information you give is inaccurate: in WipEout 3 and older you have to hold the thrust bar at a certain level right when the race starts so you get the turbo start, not press X when the 'Go' text appears.

Old threads...?? It was on the first page:rolleyes:

...and false info..?? OK then.

Sorry it was a few months old already ;) Anyways it's not the worst case, I'm just saying that if the original query has been answered, unless it's to bring complementary info (not contradictory) or to express your own troubles well I wouldn't post (I as in me). That's just how I feel it should be anyways.

But yeah the boost start doesn't work the way you described in WO3SE. Watch the video ;) Although in any newer game it works the way you describe.

Really odd, as I also use the 3,2,1, Press Hard timing for WO3 and 3SE with 100% accuracy... a similar timing works in XL/2097....
